Sammy Adams — a multi-talented artist, singer and producer, released his first independent album in 2010 called “Boston’s Boy.” After quickly rising to the #1 spot on the iTunes hip-hop charts, Adams cemented his spot on the scene. All the hype led Adams and his independent label 1st Round Records, to a deal with Sony RCA. While with RCA, Sammy collaborated with Enrique Iglesias, writing and featuring on his single “Finally Found You,” as well as producing hits such as “All Night Longer,” “Blow Up” and “Only One.” Adrian’s own Ryan ”Hitman” Betz once again opened this year’s event with his distinct sound and energetic performance.
